Not that it matters to most of you, but we have no idea where Lev Grossman is. If you’ve seen him, please tell him to come home. We miss him. And so does Church.
What better way to spend your Fridays than watching a bunch of yayhoos talking about tech, comics, movies and the like? It’s not like you’re doing all that much at work …
When I was young, I never needed anyone
And makin’ love was just for fun
Those days are gone
Livin’ alone, I think of all the friends I’ve known
But when I dial the telephone, nobody’s home.
All by myself, don’t wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself, don’t wanna live
All by myself anymore.
Eric Carmen, you know …
I know you’ve all been waiting for this week’s Techland Show, so here it is. Lev’s back! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Welcome to another episode of the Techland Show. Lev is still out this week on vacation, but fret not, he makes his triumphant return next week with Gabe and Tycho from Penny Arcade! So please stop complaining about the lack of Lev around here. It really does wonders for the morale of the Hive Mind. Really.
We went for the trifecta …
Welcome back, me!
This week, Steve and I break down the 96th day clause, Warlock lovers, Hit-Girl’s foul mouth, my love of sound manipulators and Lucy Van Pelt.
If anyone has seen Lev Grossman, please give me a call. I’m worried.
Have a great weekend, kids!

Today in Techland: In case you’re living under a rock, actually nope, Disney probably checked there. Well as everyone knows, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland opens today and because we love you, we put together a history of Alice in Wonderland. Yep. You’re welcome. We also talk a bit of Alice on today’s Techland …
This week on the Techland show we once again feature our intern Allie Townsend. Not only do Allie’s posts get more traffic than mine, she also got to see Alice before I did. This time next year Allie will probably have my job. The year after that she’ll have your job.
We get to the bottom of that and much more in this week’s …
I was going to title this post The Techland Show: The Sell-out Traffic Whore episode. But wait — isn’t that every episode?
Apparently not. We’ve been instructed to “punch up” the show and give it more “viral” potential by organizing it into a list of the week’s top five topics. There — happy now? Isn’t this what you wanted? You did …
I’m happy to report that Lev has returned from book leave! What a joyous occasion for me. Not to discredit Steve or Allie, but I’ve missed Lev. We’re like the Three Amigos minus the third Amigo, you know?
I’m not entirely sure which episode this is but I’m being told that it’s episode number 11.
Anyway, Lev chats about …
Yes, it’s true, the prodigal son has returned.
This week, Steve and I get down to business with Technotise, Frozen, the Kindle and BioShock 2! I’m normally pretty ADD, but it was really hard to shoot the show this week. All I wanted to do was kick some ass as a Big Daddy.
Okay, I have to get back to playing BioShock 2.
As Peter and Lev were both out this week, Steve and I took over The Techland Show. (Muhahaha.)
Given free reign of the couch meant that the game of the week was also under our control. So what else could two non-gamers do when forced to pick up a controller, but seek out the nearest bit of comfy nostalgia? Plus let’s face it, Super …
Peter and I got beat at Halo 3 by an 11-year-old Wednesday. 10-0, 10-0. So that was good. That was really good.
I played him on Snowbound. Snowbound is where I live, man. Snowbound is my house. I got beat in my house.
So this week Peter and I talk about that experience. And some other experiences, including our pre-Apple Tablet …
